Fast Cars & Slow Caviar: crafted to perfection
Tomorrow we will be participating in the annual Serata Italiana Lamborghini Club America Gala during Monterey's Car Week. This year they will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Lamborghini Miura. The event celebrates these beautiful cars and the luxurious lifestyle that comes with them. A perfect place to enjoy Tsar Nicoulai caviar, as well. Caviar and fancy cars. Sounds like a spectacular pairing to me.
Since I can't be at the event, I decided to make myself a dish with our Truffle Infused Whitefish Roe and our convenient and delicious Blini Mix. The Classic Signature Bite is a mini buckwheat crêpe with braised scallions, crème fraîche, and the Truffle Roe.
The Blini Mix is easily combined with a few extra ingredients. For crêpes, additional milk is added (less liquid is used for the mini blinis). I accidentally fried regular sized crêpes, but quickly grabbed a circular cookie cutter to cut them down into perfect mini crêpes. Close call.
Next, I sautéed scallions on high heat with butter, then added broth and lowered the heat, allowing them to wilt and braise. Once those were ready, each mini crêpe was topped with crème fraîche, the scallions, and some roe.
I don't have a Lamborghini so I will just have to sit back and admire our Honda CRV while nibbling on this dish - a lovely marriage of flavors from the land and sea.
